Publisher's Summary

It seems like an easy assignment for an assertive but sweet woman like Gracie Snow: track down her friend, Bobby Denton, a famous ex-jock, and bring him to Heaven (Texas, that is) to shoot a movie. How could he refuse a glamorous offer like that?

Easy, if you've got a big ego, a 1957 T-Bird, and prefer cruising the highways for girls. Still, Bobby can't get Gracie, an angel, out of his mind. Why not head to Heaven, raise a little hell, and let Gracie look out for the consequences?

If you haven't met Bobby Tom . . .

Susan Elizabeth Phillips is wise and wonderful and this is the best of her darn near perfect books.
Bobby Tom Denton is the best ever. If you haven't met him, you owe it to yourself. Don't waste another minute.

Didn't want it to end!

I immediately listened to it again!!! It is a story of love prevailing against the odds. SEP is insightful in her development of the characters. It is a wonderful story of arrogant but loveable superstar jock, Bobby Tom Denton and Gracie Snow, smart, anything but attractive and geeky. BT only dates bombshells; but his life is turned upside down when he meets Gracie the absolute opposite of the women that he surrounds himself.She is smart,but geeky and sporatically insecure. She irritates and amuses him, but Gracie's makeover transforms her into a cutie and BT doesn't like the competition. SEP also gives great descriptions of the intimate scenarios...WHEW!!! Very heartwarming to hear this story and the wonderful "story in a story" of BTs Mother overcoming the loss of her husband and BTs Dad. It is definitely worth listening to MORE THAN ONCE. Almost didn't buy because of the summary; but, it has become my favorite.

Loved Bobby Tom

I find it interesting that every single person in SEP???s books have their own distinct character and personality. I find this amazing as I read through the Chicago Stars series. Each person is distinctive. The reason I mention this is because for some unexplained reason I have a fondness for Bobby Tom Denton. Can???t explain it. Only know this character, over the other male characters in the series, stood out for me. I loved this book, as I have all of the Chicago Stars series, and would recommend it to anyone wanting an adorable love story full of fun, laughter and downright good entertainment.

Bobby, Bobby, Bobby, Gracie, Gracie, Gracie

Again a great S.E.P. book. Love, humor, football and great, great characters. You just have to love Gracie; she is so off the wall. Bobby Tom is so flummoxed by Gracie that it is cute. He thinks that he is always is in control, but little does he know... If you like S.E.P. definitely get this one.

Wooie

BT is as hot as it gets. This is a must get, but I own all of SEP books. All her Chicago stars books are Heaven. My all time fave "it had to be you" is still a great listen after all these years.

Awesome!

I've listened to almost all of SEPs books but this one was one of my all time favorites. I highly recommend this one if you like a good love story with a lot of comic relief.

Fun listening

No other word for it - fun! Great narration, the best of Anna Fields. She must have had such a good time doing all those SEP novels. The two main characters, Gracie and Bobby Joe, were right up there with the best of her couples.

Witty and wonderful romantic story.

Many funny scenes. I also enjoyed a secondary romance happening for Bobby's widowed mother Suzy. She was in her 50's and it was a nice change to see romance for someone that age. The epilogue was cut from the book, but you can read it on the author’s web site. It’s nice.

AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
Anna Fields did a great job with male and female voices.

DATA:
Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: 371 pages. Swearing language: strong including religious swear words, but not often used. Sexual language: moderate with the f-word used once. Number of sex scenes: about 8, some were briefly referred to. Setting: 1990's mostly Telarosa, Texas. Copyright: 1995. Genre: humorous contemporary romance.

OTHER BOOKS:
For a list of my reviews of other Susan Elizabeth Phillips books, see my 5 star review of “It Had To Be You.”

Gut Bustin' Good Time

Would you listen to Heaven, Texas again? Why?

Heck Ya! I LOVED Heaven, Texas! I was dying of laughter.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Surprising it was a secondary character Wade Sawyer. He was such a bad boy growing up and he turn himself around, yet the town still painted him as a bad guy. Next favorite would be Gracie Snow, because she's so sweet.

Which scene was your favorite?

To pick one. The opening scene is pretty awesome. Gracie gets mistaken as a stripper, and you see how big of a pig Bobby Tom is. He's a hard guy to love.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Home town hero has met his match.

Any additional comments?

Just a good time.
